We have also produced two booklets, one for pastors and church leaders to think through the task of passing on the baton of gospel ministry to the next generation (2 Timothy) and one for those considering the possibility of full-time gospel ministry and examining, in a very balanced way, the biblical criteria, especially for elders (1 Timothy 3).
These booklets are available at extremely low cost direct from 9:38.
